Sunday June 18th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Tragic Prelude Revisited


  3. Grandma Covfefe says:

    Blessed is the man
    Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
    But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.

      Thank you for these faithful words from our Father, Grandma Covfefe.

      This is one of my favorite Bible chapters; one that I memorized many years ago, Psalm 1. It is a marvelous and wonderful chapter, short to read, but packed with God’s sovereignty.

      The last verse gives me consolation in this dark world —

      “For the Lord watches over the ways of the righteous, but the ways of the wicked lead to destruction.”

      Amen and blessings to you, dear sister.

    “Today, Almighty God, as we observe Father’s Day, I lift up all the fathers of our nation to You with adoration and love. Fathers play an integral role in the lives of our children, as mentors, providers, caregivers and so much more and also provide a firm foundation on which our children stand. Thank You, Holy Father, for Your provision and for showering them with Your divine blessings. I pray that You would consecrate fathers and set them apart for Your purpose. Grant them peace and unity, health and strength, joy and happiness throughout their lives. May they walk with integrity, uprightly with You, in steadfastness and humility.”

    RAF squadron leader who devised the REAL Great Escape is to be honoured where he was executed on Hitler’s orders

    Daredevil skiier, ladies’ man and multilingual Cambridge-educated barrister Roger Bushell helped 76 prisoners of war escape from Stalag Luft III, a Nazi camp in occupied Poland.

    Just 33 at the time of his death, Squadron Leader Bushell – played by Richard Attenborough in the classic 1963 film – had been in enemy hands since his first day of combat, when he was shot down in a Spitfire during the Dunkirk evacuation.

    Now Bushell, whose place of death was only established two years ago, will finally be remembered with a plaque and ceremony on July 1, according to The Times.

    For all our U. S. Marine Corps fathers…

    Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones, and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family.

    Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my Country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold.

    If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.

    Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.

    Semper Fidelis!

        I am so sorry for your loss Minnie. A very hard first Father’s Day without your dear Papa.

        That was the same thing I called my dad. 26 years after his death I still cry thinking of my Papa on this day.

        I pray our Father in Heaven holds you close and gives you His peace this bittersweet of days.

    It took me years to find the Father’s Day gift my Dad really enjoys. As the years went by he had everything he needed or wanted, it was so hard to pick something special.

    Then one year I took him to dinner at his favorite restaurant and we talked and laughed and had a great time. Been doing the same thing every year since. Best idea, so much fun.

    Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s. We love you more than words can say.

      That WAS awesome. Thanks for the post which gave me a smile.

      Lost my humble, gentle, manly dad, brave, retired NYC fireman last December. Was blessed with my new grand baby this March. I whispered into the ear of my dad, as he lie unresponsive and drifting away, in hospice a mere 12 hrs before he passed, to please look after the new baby we were expecting when he got to see him, which would be before any of us, and for the rest of his/her life. I know my dad would/will.

      I have my beautiful grand baby, my son and my husband now, only. My heart is grateful for them. Yet it still cries for the sad, tough loss of my dear dad. He suffered much the last year, progressively worse each month, but he NEVER said ‘why me’.

      He accepted the Will of his Father and sought the arms of His Son, I know. I saw and heard his last lucid hours. God bless you dad. I’m trying to be strong and just focus on the Faith I have, the example of our dear Blessed Mother, and all I know to be true. But too many times the tears just fall, and fall and fall.

      I love you, always. ❤️ I know you’re still looking out for your family. And as you said many times: ‘We’re the Fuhgowey!’

    real good article…

    What makes the last days so dangerous?

    “The Psychological teaching on the Self was in direct conflict with Christian teaching..”

    How the “pseudo science of Psychology” and its spread from Europe to America falls right into Paul’s warnings…

      Take Time to Pray

      On the days like today,
      We must take time to pray,
      ‘Cause God’s got it all in His hands.

      We worry amidst the lies,
      But God is our True Guide,
      And this is all part of His plan.

      We know that men will lie,
      But God will never deceive.
      We must hold fast to God,
      And to always believe.

      Now my heart up and flies
      Because we’ve won the prize
      With the strength of God’s right hand.

      He will win come what may,
      His way is the right way,
      His power no one can withstand.

    Madrid is Infested With Aberrosexual Propaganda — Epidemiologists Are Concerned

    (Madrid) The proportion of homosexuals in the total population is about 1.5 percent. How does this small number explain the extent of homo propaganda? This is currently the question of many in Madrid. The Spanish capital will be hosting the World Cup 2017 from 23 June to 2 July . Epidemiologists see in the homo-spectacles mainly a dangerous cesspool of viruses.

    Happy Father’s day..
    Hope you don’t mind if I post the entire song:

    “That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine”
    (originally by Gene Autry)

    In a vine covered shack in the mountains
    Bravely fighting the battle of time
    Is a dear one who’s weathered my sorrows
    Tis that silver haired daddy of mine

    If I could recall all the heartaches
    Dear old daddy I’ve caused you to bear
    If I could erase those lines from your face
    And bring back the gold to your hair

    If God would but grant me the power
    Just to turn back the pages of time
    I’d give all I own, if I could but atone
    To that silver haired daddy of mine

    I know it’s too late dear old daddy
    To repay for those sorrows and cares
    Though dear mother is waiting in heaven
    Just to comfort, and solace you there

    If I could recall all the heartaches
    Dear old daddy I’ve caused you to bear
    If I could erase those lines from your face
    And bring back the gold to your hair

    If God would but grant me the power
    Just to turn back the pages of time
    I’d give all I own, if I could but atone
    To that silver haired daddy of mine

    This is definitely bitter-sweet, but a classic none the less.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

First I saw was about the Paris Accord, second was about GMO…very impressive guy. Frankly, I like him simply because he is an immigrant from India and is using that as an attack mechanism against kooky Elizabeth Warren.
